One of the lowest production boats to come out of Century Boats is it’s most desired today by collectors. Like most performance boats of the day, they were used well and worn out. There are just a handful of these little lake terrorists around today. Introduced at the New York Boat Show in 1931, the compact 14 footer could reach up to 42mph and sold for a whopping $1,200 bucks. For the record.. Anyone have a serial number of one for sale. I will buy the serial number for $1,200 bucks…To find a barn find Thunderbolt would be like … well….. I am not sure what it would be like…it’s so rare that I don’t even go there.. So.. you say, I want one anyway, I am the sort of guy that gets what I want. Here is your answer Mr Get-outa-my-way pants. You can have one built at mbbw.com. They have access to engineered drawings and some wood cutting machines…. Some guys that know what they are doing and varnish.. And poof, you got yourself a Thunderbolt. And if you have a serial number, that lets say you got off a reader of your website for 1,200 smackaroos… You are set… Now all I you need is a name… Like Grease Slapper… Ya, you my friend could own a Thunderbolt grease slapper just like Tom Slick! Here are some links to Thunderbolts… Here, and here… here… and over here… And wow, were has it gone… oh over there..
